    Mythical national championships. Not there is presently another kind in college football as perfectly illustrated by Alabama's last two seasons involving a home loss. Politics, corruption and college football go quite well together as the Hernandez case shows.

    You can't be serious.

    Not that we know of, but he did punch someone at a bar which is EXACTLY what Ahern did in '07. Now...I don't expect Morrison to go on and kill someone in cold blood years from now, but we have the same chance now that Meyer had then to "take serious action."

    What do you recommend? And if you recommend no "serious action," then you're a hypocrite for calling out Meyer while advocating the exact same course of action.

    Specify them then. Many years ago, some FSU fans compiled a tally of miscreant arrests during the SOS Era beginning in 1995. The tally went on for several pages. How much blow did Rex and Big Money lash up their noses while at Florida? Spurrier was no more a disciplinarian than any of his successors.

    Meyer was considered a god here until he left ESPN for OSU. This is so pathetic, just as many fans turned on SOS for daring to take a coaching job at USCe.

    rserina, great post, but I don't think Meyer was treated worse than Zook. No one was treated that badly. When the leading sports reporter in the state demands your firing BEFORE you even ARRIVE, that is bad. like Meyer, Zook bent over backwards to appease the Florida fans by hiring Zaunbrecher at Foley's insistence, because the Gator Nation (and Rex, along with his annoying dad) demanded that Florida have high-powered passing offense. Zook also turned his head on punishment (most notably with Channing Crowder) because he couldn't AFFORD to lose. Meyer had a lot more latitude.

    How many mythical crystal trophies are in the trophy case, and how many were put there by Meyer's Gators?

    I agree. We should have turned on him when he went to ESPN.

    I meant it more as a shot at ESPN than at Meyer.
